Reviews | Dog On It

Think Turner and Hooch.  This mystery-lite is a lot of fun.  Two misfits form the Small Detective Agency–-Bernie, a P.I., detective-gone-bad and his canine buddy, Chet, an almost K-9 graduate. Together they solve crimes in the Valley (Los Angeles). This, the first in a new series, as told to the readers by Chet, which in his own words (barks?), is about a 15-year old abducted girl and his and Bernie’s adventures to rescue her. I am already looking forward to the next installment of these two characters.  – Sue Fleming

P.I. Chet is up against terrible odds–kidnapped, beaten, imprisoned, attempted euthanasia, car chases complete with cliffs and explosions–but does that stop him and his human sidekick Bernie? Definitely not. They’re on the case, and the bad guys have no idea who they’re dealing with. A missing teenager, a failing real estate development, a villainous cockatoo, dog-napping Russians; Dog On It has a blockbusting plot, but the real stars are Chet and Bernie. Chet is a hilarious narrator, with a keen eye (and nose) for the foibles of humanity. Bernie is a classic hard-boiled, down-on-his-luck gumshoe with quick fists and a kind heart. I can see mystery book groups around the country adopting Chet as their new mascot with this wonderful first installment in what I hope will be a long series. – Jenn Northington

    This book sounds like one I would enjoy, beginning with the title itself.
    I may read it one day. Humor, mystery, P.I. and dogs: all good.
